Rick Mooney

Sales Consultant
Horowhenua / Foxton/Foxton Beach

About me

My background is from the melting pot of New Zealand 'South Auckland'. I was born in Papakura and grew up in Manurewa and Papatoetoe - we even lived in Australia for three years.

I came to real estate at the beginning of 1997 with a background in Retail Sales, Office Administration and Key Account Management. Historically, I am a bit of a self starter with a tendency to commit totally to whatever I choose to do. In past roles I developed many skills that have been perfect for real estate and I love to build long term relationships with clients based on honesty and trust.

This journey has carried on for over 22 years now and there have been many fantastic memories. 

I have chosen with my wife Christine to relocate up to the beautiful Horowhenua. We have owned a bach at the beach for over 10 years and we have decided we would love to make Horowhenua our permanent base.

I look forward to getting to know and assist local people by utilising my years of experience to help them have a fabulous experience when it comes to selling their home, bach, lifestyle property, farm or business. 

I am very excited to be part of one of New Zealand's most exciting real estate advances by becoming part of Tall Poppy, offering fairer fees and better service.

If you are thinking about making a change, why not give me a call for some obligation free, expert advice.

Rick's testimonials


What an easy hassle free experience this has been for me.. Rick Mooney has been an absolute pleasure to deal with, he has a very friendly, relaxed confident manner, is very informative and had great communication with myself and also potential purchasers, he's very honest and practical and I have already recommended Rick to others and wouldn't hesitate to do so again in the future, if only everything we had to do in life was this transparent and hassle free.. Thanks Rick... You Rock!!!.. Keep up the good work...


Rick entered into the sale of my property at a time when we moved into level 4 of lockdown. I had just managed to have 3 open homes and it was still summer. This created a number of challenges as the whole 'open home concept' was revised and we became more focussed on 'online marketing'. I was somewhat concerned by not having the volume that I expected but in discussions with Rick we shifted our price range and took appointments. 3 months drifted by and I have to say I was getting somewhat panicky as we had talked up 'an easy sale at the beach'. Appointments were minimal when suddenly....a buyer appeared and offered me a price that I accepted. This offer was 20k below what I would have really liked but given the unsureity of the market it has proved to be a wise decision. Rick is a very thorough agent who loves to share his experiences in real estate. At no stage did he show concern about 'not getting a sale'. Rick has become a kind of 'real estate buddy ' as he is dealing with 2 of our properties ....and we are now hoping that with his guidance property 2 will sell.

Murray & Gesine

Rick previously sold a property for us in another town and we were delighted to find him in our kneck of the woods. Once again he showed the same level of committment knowledge and expertise in marketing our property. We were very happy with the ultimate sale and will use his services again in the near future.


I found Rick to be really knowledge and helpful through the process - thanks so much!

Rick was very helpful guiding us through our first home buying experience. Rick was professional and friendly and a pleasure to deal with. I was also impressed with the respect Rick displayed towards the tenants of the home we purchased. Thanks Rick, we love our home and your assistance throughout the process is much appreciated.


Rick never lacked positive energy re sale of my property, especially post Covid and the doom and gloom that media portrayed about the housing market.
